Mini-Review Madness: The Audiobook Edition Part 1

Today I have a pair of audiobooks for you. One I loved and one I hated.

Earth: The Audiobook
Jon Stewart
5/5

Jon Stewart explains Earth to the aliens that will visit us in the future. Do you need more than that?

This audiobook accompanied my husband and I on a drive from Ann Arbor to Charlevoix this summer. It was hilarious, as expected. The satire that the Jon Stewart and his writers give to the world is much needed.

1/5

Harry Dresden is a crime fighting wizard. When a paranormal double murder occurs, the Chicago PD call him to help investigate. Soon he is wrapped up in a complex plot full of magic and mobs.

I can’t remember the last time I gave a book one star. I considered giving it 0. I pretty much loathed this one. Not even James Marsters as narrator could save this one (he actually made it worse – I could hear him BREATHING). The writing was subpar, the story fell flat, and the characters were unlikeable. I really can’t believe I finished reading it. People have told me the series gets better but there is no chance I am ever going to make it that far to find out. Sorry guys.

On a side note, my morning sickness began when I was listening at this and just looking at the cover actually makes me feel ill.

    Sorry to hear the Dresden book wasn’t good. I have heard good things about those books, but I guess this one just didn’t cut the mustard. I hate it when you can hear the narrator breathe! That happened to me with a book I gave up on last week!

    Boo for books that don’t work! Hopefully you’re on to one that you enjoy more.
